I know F is for Fox, but this card is for Peter. (Most of my stampers used F as their letter!) This card is also for Carol, who has been asking for months for a card with this image from Storybook Friends. It uses a favorite color combo of mine, Cajun Craze and Marina Mist.
I had to research the coloring of the fox — I’m not sure that there’s a consistent color due to locale and season — and I decided to try for more red near the head and more brown near the tail. I’m still practicing coloring with re-inkers; I think my stampers this month did a better job than I did!
A new obsession is the Dictionary background stamp. The print is smaller than on the First Edition DSP, and of course it can be any color on any background you choose! I can’t defend this, but I prefer using wood-mounted stamps for backgrounds. Could it be the so-cool stamp case it comes in? I think this product is a bargain at $6.94 for four cases — they’re perfect for scraps and tools.
